Sort of. The 425e will probably run NetBSD just fine, except-
Under NetBSD, you won't have a console as SGC slot graphics cards
are not supported currently. So no X..
The 425 itself doesn't support the serial port as a console in the rom. the
serial ports themselves might possibly be usuable, but I think there're
non-300/400 standard ports.
The built-in digital audio is not supported, but I'm trying to get docs out
of HP. The same goes for the parallel port.
The built-in cdrom (if you have one) should work fine. I don't think the
built-in floppy drive (if you have one) is supported.
